    "The 2008 fiscal year was a steady year for Global Energy Services Ltd.,"
said Mr. Derek Begin, President and CEO of Global Energy. "Global's outlook
for the future is bright. Our patented down-hole pump is a leader in low
pressure, low volume dewatering and is being sought after by the industry. The
collapse of gas prices and lowering of oil prices has and will continue to be
a challenge. As with most oil and gas service companies we have downsized at
all levels of the company and have reduced costs wherever possible to maximize
shareholder value."
